Terrasson-Lavilledieu felt like freedom. After being in Coly for a few weeks, I'd begun to forget what cities were like: stores existed, there were designated parking spaces, there was a supermarket.
Looking back now, Terrasson was really small. It wasn't nearly dirty enough to be a real "city" and I think I'd refer to it more as a "countryside town." It had a beautiful river running through it, a church older than my great-grandparents, and some of the most relaxing views I've seen.
To be honest, I don't think Oanh and I did that much. We mostly walked around, took pictures, and ate ice cream-- but it was just what we needed at the time. We wanted to get out of the one-road town (3 kilometeres wide) and see something new. It wasn't very "adventurous" but it was gorgeous all the same.
